Humans like to take extra steps to keep their skin and hair healthy and looking its best. We purchase special soaps, take dietary supplements, brush and/or wash frequently, and apply lotions, salves, or other treatments to keep our skin and hair groomed. This is for appearances as well as our health.
Dogs are unable to do much of that for themselves — other than licking everywhere they can reach, of course — but their owners can take additional steps to keep their skin and coat healthy and clean. Regular baths with special shampoos, consistent brushing to remove dirt and loose fur, and dietary supplements can all help keep their coats smooth and their skin moist and flake-free. Healers PetCare is proud to offer Skin & Coat Health Chews that are filled with ingredients specifically selected to support healthy skin, fight irritants, and reduce inflammation. They are perfect for dogs of all breeds and sizes, and we can’t wait for you and your pup to fall in love with them.
What did we put in our Skin & Coat Health Chews?
When we set out to create a supplement for skin and coat health, we knew we needed to produce something that was specially formulated with key, natural ingredients to benefit our customers’ pets. That meant ensuring each chew was packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, flaxseed, turmeric, and more to keep each pup in optimal health. Here’s a closer look at our Skin & Coat Health Chews’ ingredients and why they are so impactful:
Flaxseed — helps fight skin irritants as well as boost cardiovascular health, energy levels, dental health, and digestion. It also offers both anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
Black chia seed — high in omega-3s for skin and brain health, improves energy, boosts digestion, and helps with weight management. Black chia is high in the protein phosphorous, too, which animals use to grow and repair body tissues.
Spirulina platensis — a good source of iron, B-12, and GLA, which help with strong body functions, energy, and encouraging the body to absorb necessary nutrients. It also boasts anti-cancer and anti-aging components.
Choline bitartrate — not produced by the body, but known to help with brain and liver health and prevent fatty livers
Sunflower lecithin — a source of three essential fatty acids that boost immune function, and also helps prevent cell membranes from becoming hard. This encourages healthy cell reproduction which keeps dogs’ skin moist and healthy.
Inositol — helps maintain healthy circulatory system functioning and lowers stress, both of which aid in producing healthy skin and hair cell growth
Chamomile flower (organic) — an anti-inflammatory with additional antioxidant and antiseptic properties to protect your pup’s skin
Beef liver — rich in vitamin A, which is necessary for healthy skin, eyes, and immune system function. It is also a great natural source of iron.
Silica — called a “beauty mineral” because it is key to hair and nail growth as well as boosting skin health
Stearic acid — a stabilizer used to help the chew keep its form
Turmeric root — curcumin in turmeric offers anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-arthritic properties. For more on turmeric’s benefits, check out our blog post.
White whey — source of protein to help your pup’s body use all the nutrients in the chew and promote overall health and wellness
Yucca root — reduces inflammation, boosts energy and immunity, relieves joint pain and arthritis, prevents digestive issues, and reduces stress
Best of all, dogs of all sizes and ages can benefit from our skin and coat supplements:
- Under 29 pounds: 1 chew per day
- 30 to 65 pounds: 2 chews per day
- Over 65 pounds: 2 to 3 chews per day
